83 years ago, Leila Adele Welsh’s last good night ended in murder

In the City of Kansas City, Missouri, a young and promising woman named Leila Welsh was tragically taken from this world on a fateful night in March 1941. As she returned home from a fun date attending the Police Circus event and ending the evening for drinks at the President Hotel (now Hilton President), her life was brutally cut short between the hours of 1:00-5:00 a.m. at the tender age of 24. Leila, a beloved teacher with a heart of gold, and well-liked, touched the lives of many with her kindness. Little did she know that her final evening would be shrouded in darkness and mystery.
